[mythtv-users] Weird double program (UK_RT)

My Mythtv listings currently have 2 versions of the same program on the
exact same channel, starting 5 minutes apart from each other.

The channel is Sky Sports 2, the program is Live Super League starting at
17:25 and 17:30 on 28/2/2009.

Running the uk_rt grabber manually with debug on it gives the following
output when receiving the program:
  Processing programme title 'Live Super League'
  Using sub-title 'Harlequins v Wigan' as episode not given

  Removed updated listing information from description:
    'starts five minutes later'
  Start time given as '2009/02/28 17:30', duration 245 mins
  Implicit timezone calculated to be '+0000'
  20090228173000 +0000 - Start time
  20090228213500 +0000 - Stop time

Mythtv listings then show "Unknown" for a little while before the next
proper program kicks in (Football First - Match Choice at 22:15).

Not sure of the cause of the issue here, but maybe the listing timing has
changed and the listings haven't been tidied up properly because of the
gap, thus failing to overwrite an earlier program already in the database?

Certainly there's no valid reason why 2 programs on the same channel
should be allowed to overlap!
